The Riggs Blog
The Riggs Blog is a mix of news about clinical work, research and educational activities from the Austen Riggs Center, as well as a source for information beyond our walls that we find interesting and thought-provoking.
“Our patients often struggle alone with serious secret and shameful self-doubt, and therapy offers a private space to form a relationship, come to trust someone and be less alone with their pain.” – Eric Plakun, MD, director of admissions and associate medical director
We offer a two-year Fellowship in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, and a four-year Fellowship in advanced psychoanalytic psychotherapy and psychoanalytic studies.
Recently, Austen Riggs held a blog competition among staff members where we asked them to write about what makes Riggs unique. Over the next few weeks you will read entries from a diverse field of respondents. Congratulations to Lindsay Codwise, Development Assistant, for creating the winning blog entry.
In Deborah Solomon’s recently published biography American Mirror: The Life and Art of Norman Rockwell, she gives a thorough account of the years Rockwell and his family lived in Stockbridge, MA.
